Run don't walk

Your search is over. This is the best wedding band in this biz. We received more compliments about our wedding band than any other vendor/detail from our wedding day. They brought the party of our dreams to life from the first song, and kept it going throughout the entire night, ending with horns following us as the perfect posse to our sparkler exit.

Katie also helped us a lot with our timeline, and gave necessary announcements throughout the night to keep things moving and to keep guests apprised of important details. She made everything so stress free for us. I do not know why you would hire any other band

Band was excellent

We hired the band fairly last minute (2 months out) and could not have been happier with how things went. All the planning and logistics leading up to the wedding were super easy with no stress, the band did not hassle us for weird requirements and let us relay stage/setup information as we got organized. They arrived well ahead of time and were set up ready to roll when guests arrived.
The band performance was outstanding, they are obviously very talented but also they are great performers, know how to engage the crowd, and really made the night. Many compliments from guests on their performance. Overall, highly highly recommend them!

Central City Orchestra played at a wedding we planned and not only did they keep the dance floor packed all night they also helped us perfectly execute a surprise wedding! They were so great to work with and worked with us to create a reception timeline that worked perfectly with the surprise. Looking forward to working with them again!
